Loving the hard to handle- one of my favorites.
My uptight classical friends are going to cringe to my delight. I'm sharing this one on that social media site I love to hate.

For your "uptight classical friends' might I recommend The Ukulele Orchestra's version of 'MacArthur's Park'. Incredible how they get that sweeping orchestral sound while nailing all of the time and rhythm changes of the original - impressive and amusing.

Hawaiian shirt, flip-flops, uke, standing...Hard to Handle! Yeah.

No matter how hard you try, there's just no way to look cool playing a ukelele. Not that these folks aren't trying. 10 points for effort. I keep getting a disturbing mental image of Pig whipping out a uke' for a rousing Good Morning Little Schoolgirl.

Seriously, not bad stuff. Very entertaining.

I saw a guy play Purple Haze on an electrified uke that was crunching out of a Marshall stack. You know, doesn't anyone supervise those people spending our student fees.
